Good morning again!

First, thank you so much for all of the birthday wishes. It was a wonderful day. I had a facial, massage, manicure, pedicure, and lunch at the day spa. Then last night we went to dinner at The Melting Pot. I enjoyed being pampered and felt very loved. :)

It was fun to read all of your blog comments! And I love that I'm responsible for quite a few people's vintage addictions. Ha :) There's nothing like browsing thru a vintage junk store and finding a big jar of buttons, spools of old lace, or a stack of old family photos.

I would love to be able to give away more than one vintage package. Since I can't, I wanted to give all of you at least a little something! So, I scanned some of the paper items that I'm giving away and am making them available to all of you for printing! I know they aren't all glittery, but hopefully they are a good consolation prize. These are pretty generic, old items so I don't see any copyright issues with posting these. (Just please don't sell them or make them part of a digital package since you don't own the originals.) Here are the images - just click on them to make them larger for printing.

Vintage Postcards (back with writing)

Vintage Score Sheet

Vintage Bingo Card

I'm sorry, but unfortunately I can't scan the sheet music since it's copyrighted and from a book. However, if you'll go to a used book store or an antique store, you can find old hymnals or soft-cover songbooks. My pages are from my grandmother's old books, but you can always find some in one of these places. Sometimes you'll even get lucky at thrift stores. for the winner! If this is your post, please email me and I'll get your package in the mail to you. Thank you everyone for your comments. Please come back as I'll have more to share and probably more giveaways in the future!

Congrats to Emily!! I won the Countdown to Christmas Flip Calendar. I have just now started working on it and I am loving it!

Thank you for allowing us to make our own copies. I immediately printed the Bingo card and have an idea in mind for it.

Glad you had an awesome birthday.
